Putting the glam in camping

Camping used to mean roughing it. But over the past decade, the travel industry has seen a surge in "glamour camping" (dubbed “glamping”), a trend that pairs luxury accommodations in the wilderness. Glamping is perfect for those travelers who are searching for nature but don’t want to sacrifice the comforts of home. Here are 10 hot glamping holidays.

I suppose the package comes with someone to wipe their hiney and spoon feed them too.


An outdoor 5 star hotel.  Ensuite bathroom????  If I go camping that would be a 5gal bucket with roll of toilet paper.  Camping for pansy's is what this is.

I can do this...this is much better than pitching a tent and laying on the ground.

As close to "glam" as I want to get when camping is having a tarp without holes to sleep under when I'm out in the middle of the woods.

I can think of a lot of words to describe this, but camping ain't one of them.

This article is not about camping but is about living graciously in the great outdoors, with having people doing the camp work for you. This is how I live at home in Costa Rica, outdoors, but it ain't campin'.

If you're sleeping in a bed, you're not camping...
